Okay, so we know that what we consume internally is important, organic produce and clean eating is necessary for good health. So what about what we put on our bodies?
Making ethical choices is important for the planet and our bodies. When looking at vegan skin care we are looking for products that are free from animal testing, also known as cruelty-free and free from animal products such as lanolin, gelatin and animal fats. These ingredients are easily replaced by plant alternatives and some of the leading organic and natural skin care brands offer beautiful products to fit this ethos.
So, what’s available at Kunara? Well heaps…let’s dive in!
Inika certified organic and vegan makeup is truly leading the way in luxe natural makeup. We love it!
